Town of Farmville’s 6th Annual 5k & Fun Run Postponed Due to COVID-19

New Date: 08/15/2020

After close consultation with our partners and community, we’ve made the difficult decision to postpone the Farmville 5k & Fun Run that was originally scheduled for May 9, 2020. It will be postponed until August 15, 2020. Having spent the past few months preparing for the event, we are genuinely upset and disappointed not to be able to host you all at this time. We want to thank all of our participants and partners for their unwavering support, open discussions, and encouragement. We will be working closely with our partners to finalize the details and will share more information about our plans in the coming months. For more information, please visit our website at www.farmvillencparks.com or give us a call at 252-753-6722.
